Smothered Slow Cooker Chile Verde Pork Burritos

With school back in session, I am all about easy meals that I can throw together with little effort on my part. That is why I love slow cooker meals. Minimal prep work and one delicious, easy meal that cooks for hours and makes your house smell amazing!

This is a recipe my mom has been making since I was a little girl and it is fabulous!  The flavor of the pork is amazing and we wrap it in smother burritos.

If you are looking for a tasty and easy Mexican meal, give this one a try! It is definitely in my family’s regular dinner rotation!

    Could you use stewing beef instead? I don't really like pork in burritos.

    I just dusted off my slow cooker earlier this week. Forgot how much I should be using it (but havent been). This looks like a total time saver. Have a great weekend, Nikki!

    I feel silly for not knowing this, but when you say 2 green chiles (4 oz), do you mean in a can? Actual chiles? This looks so good!

    1. Chef in Training

      yes the 4 oz. cans. so sorry about the confusion, I will clarify that in the recipe.
